Job growth for professional positions continued in July, an employment monitor has found
It is the fifth consecutive month of growth and the highest number of jobs in more than a year.
Overall, the availability of professional jobs increased by 13% in July 2018 compared to the same month a year ago.
That is despite a traditional slowdown in job creation and growth in the summer.
However, there was a decrease in the number of professionals actively seeking new job opportunities in July 2018, the number dropping by 9.7%
The Morgan McKinley Ireland Employment Monitor says positions most in demand include financial services, technology, science and engineering and multi-lingual tech support.
Trayc Keevans, Morgan McKinley Ireland's Global FDI Director stated: "There has been no traditional seasonal slowdown in terms of job creation and growth.
"There is still a very strong confidence in the marketplace as July was a very healthy month for job announcements.
"There was also an increase in the number of professionals seeking new roles as the summer months and school holidays have proven a popular time for candidates with families seeking to relocate here, confirming that Ireland continues to be a major lure for returning migrants and foreign talent interested in taking up roles particularly in the tech space.
"Internal relocation within Ireland is beginning to grow as the high-value job opportunities in the regions continue to come to market.
"We’re seeing a lot of talent migrating from across Europe and the UK citing Brexit as a major push factor."
